How independent are the Fund managers? Does the Centre for Effective Altruism (CEA) control or influence their actions? What if CEA and Fund managers disagree?

The Fund managers are independent of the Centre for Effective Altruism (CEA), and CEA will not seek to change or influence their donation decisions as a general rule.

CEA does create policies and procedures which might constrain the grants that the Fund managers are able to make, and our internal operations team reviews each recommended grant, in order to confirm that the money will be used for charitable activities. CEA remains ultimately responsible for approving all grants, and reserves the right to decline to approve grant recommendations made the the Fund managers.
